Lake Seminole Fishing Report July 2012
Seminole: Level: 1.1 feet low. Temp: 84 degrees. Clarity: Clear.
Bass: Fair. Matt Baty reports, “The fish are somewhat biting but are not really tearing it up. A consistent pattern can be hard to find. The best technique is to fish grasslines close to bends in the Flint River around the Jack Wingate’s area. A buzzbait or a walking bait are good choices before the sun comes up. An old-glory colored Spro Dawg 100 comes with Gamakatsu hooks and is a great walking bait. Due to the thick hydrilla, it is best to fish with braided line such as 50-lb. Sunline FX2 Braid. After the sun comes up, you can fish these same areas a little slower with a soft-plastic jerkbait such as a Big Bite Baits 6-inch Jerk Minnow in watermelon. This bait is heavy and has a big profile, so it sinks relatively fast and can be fished strategically in the 4- to 6-foot range. When this pattern slows down, you basically have two choices on what to do later in the day. You can either flip matted hydrilla or fish pads with a frog. For flipping, look for grasslines in the 10- to 14-foot range, and use a 1 1/4-oz. tungsten weight with a Big Bite Baits Swimming Craw in tilapia. For pad fishing, the best areas are over on the Chattahoochee River, and you need to throw a Spro Bronzeye 65 in rainforest yellow.”
